At the southern tip of the Adriatic coast of Croatia lies the popular tourist destination of the ancient city of Dubrovnik, famous for its spectacular Old Town. You can explore Dubrovnik in a hire car and visit the various sights of the city using your hotel as a base.
It is best to pick up your hire car at Dubrovnik Airport, which is only about six kilometres from the city centre, so you can reach your hotel in just a few minutes. For optimum comfort, you can also book your vehicle easily with TUI Cars from your PC at home.
This way you will avoid any waiting time on arrival, and you can find the type of vehicle that suits your needs hassle free. Off-road SUVs are available, as are small urban cars or trendy cabriolets that let you feel the wind blowing in your hair as well as the warming rays of the sun on your skin.
Dubrovnik - cultural holidays on the Croatian Adriatic
After picking up your hire car from the car rental office, head towards the centre and park in the large public garage in Zagrebačka street, close to the Old Town.
The Old Town centre is surrounded by an ancient city wall, which in places reaches 25 metres in height. Pass through the Pile Gate in the west of the city to reach the Old Town. Just behind the gate you can climb the city wall to start a circular walk around the quarter.
The Old Town of Dubrovnik is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of fascinating sights, such as the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, built between 1672 and 1713, inside which is the famous Madonna and Child painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Titian. In your hire car you can drive up to the top cable car station to enjoy a wonderful view over the city.
Dubrovnik - general information
Many tourists visit the city in the peak season and it can often be difficult to find space to park a car in the city centre of Dubrovnik.
Therefore, it is advisable to park the car in the public garage and walk a few metres into the historic city. In its car hire package TUI Cars already includes fully comprehensive insurance and excess waiver insurance.
If any damage occurs on your trip, you are completely covered. You can also drive around the surrounding area of Dubrovnik. For instance, to Copacabana Beach on the Lapad peninsula to take a dip in the sea or enjoy one of the many water sports on offer.
